PMCT Training for Radiographers

This 3 or 5 day course will teach radiographers how to complete PMCT scans. The course is run by radiographers with many years experience in PM imaging.

This course is intended for radiographers who know how to use a CT scanner. The course can be tailored for other radiographers and medical staff who may be employed in PM imaging with prior discussion.

A series of lectures will be provided including:

  • Introduction to PM imaging
  • How to do PMCT scans
  • How and why use ventilation with PMCT scans
  • How and why use post mortem CT angiography
  • How coronary artery calcium scoring can be used in PMCT
  • How a PMCT service can be run

The radiographer participants will spend half the course in the scanner leaning how to do PMCT scans. Working with local radiographers, by the end of the course radiographers with prior CT knowledge should be confident in completing a PMCT scan. Others on the course will observe or complete scanning depending on their experience and current role.

The scans will be reviewed the following morning so the participants can gain an understanding of interpreting scans. They will be able to recognise common pathologies and differentiate them from PM changes.



The course is run at Leicester Hospitals.
